Jacobson Laboratory

B cells and Antibody Memory

Welcome to the Jacobson Lab

Our research studies the ability of the immune system to clear pathogens and form immunity through production of antibody and B cell memory.

We're part of the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, and a member of the Infection & Immunity Program and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

Our research

Human health and longevity is dependent on the ability of the immune system to clear the multitude of different foreign pathogens encountered throughout life. Our research studies the ability of the immune system to clear pathogens and form immunity through production of antibody and B cell memory. Understanding the molecular networks and unique regulators that underpin this is core to finding new treatments for B cell-mediated disease and future vaccine design.

  • Epigenetic regulation of immunity

    We investigate the role of epigenetic modifications during the formation of immunity in health and chronic infection.

  • Chronic infectious disease

    Revealing the origin and function of ‘atypical’ memory B-cells, and how their formation is regulated at the molecular level, is important for the development of new antibody-based vaccines for these diseases.
